Dallas Stars vs Columbus Blue Jackets: NHL First Meets Worst

Dallas Stars vs Columbus Blue Jackets: NHL First Meets Worst

Dallas Stars: Still shining as the top team in the NHL

Continuing to churn along as the best team in hockey, though Washington is taking a run at them, Dallas plays their third game in four nights here. The Stars rolled into the Christmas break with three straight wins, by a combined 14-5 count, over Montreal, Minnesota and Chicago. Playing on Boxing Day, Dallas lost 3-2 (SO) in St. Louis before blanking the Blues 3-0 at home on Sunday. That victory keeps the Stars perfect at 10-0 in contests that follow a regulation or extra time loss and they’ve outscored their opponents by a 46-23 combined final count in those contests.

Columbus Blue Jackets: Continue to struggle at both ends of the rink

Losing your starting goaltender is never a good thing, just ask the Montreal Canadiens, it’s complicated even more when it happens to a team that struggles on offense. That’s been the case in Columbus as the Blue Jackets have been without Sergei Bobrovsky for ten games now and they have posted a 2-6-2 record without him. The Blue Jackets are back home after three losses on the road as they were outscored 13-6 during games in Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay and Florida. Home cooking hasn’t helped the Blue Jackets much as they are just 5-8-3 on their own pond this season.

Dallas vs Columbus NHL Call: Kari Lehtonen (12-2-0 GAA 2.48) faces Curtis McElhinney (1-6-2 GAA 3.30) in the netminding matchup here. Lehtonen stopped 22 shots in the 3-0 win over the Blues on Sunday and he’s perfect with a 7-0 record on the road this season. McElhinney has been generous towards his opponents recently as he has allowed 20 goals on just 138 shots (.855 SVP) during seven appearances in December.
